It’s officially spring, which means New Yorkers are already thinking about our summer escapes to one of Long Island’s many beach towns. While we daydream of sand between our toes, the Out East team has been heads-down building some cutting-edge new tools for agents to help them get through the busy season with ease. We’re excited to officially introduce Out East Agent Tools, a simplified and upgraded listing management platform for Hamptons agents that provides a modernized platform to manage and market their listings.
Out East Agent Tools replaces RealNet, a two-decades old software system previously used to manage and publish listings on Out East. The new platform is a crucial upgrade from RealNet, built with the latest technology and an intuitive design that makes listing entry and management much easier. While agents can still access RealNet for historical data, they will use Out East Agent Tools to upload all new listings and manage their ongoing book of business.
There may be a new look and feel, but the custom nature of this platform remains the same. It’s tailored for and dedicated to Hamptons, North Fork and Shelter Island real estate and the agents who operate in these markets. To determine which changes would be most helpful, the Out East team spent several months gathering feedback from dozens of Hamptons brokerages and real estate professionals to identify and prioritize the most critical features for this market. Here are a few highlights within the new platform:
- Search filters for amenities such as pool type and views
- Ability to schedule professional-only open houses
- Listing map view and sharing options for seamless client interaction
- Sophisticated search functionality for exclusives, co-exclusives, and open listings within your brokerage
- Live chat support
A listing on Out East already receives 6x the amount of views than it did on HREO, meaning consumers are flocking to the Out East platform to fantasise about a home in the Hamptons. With Out East Agent Tools, agents can now upload or update their listings more efficiently and be confident the information is accurate and searchable. That valuable time saved can now be spent helping buyers, sellers and renters make their Hamptons home dreams come true.
